This bundle includes fortnightly (short term) planning templates for Gaeilge and English based on the 2015 Primary Language Curriculum (PLC).
I created these templates based on the suggestions from the PDST’s planning templates for the new Curriculum.
I did not find the PDST templates clear enough or easy to use so I spent a full week working on my own templates for Irish and English.

I have included 2 different templates in this bundle and you can select which one suits your needs better. Template 1 lets you use the progression milestones and steps in your planning. Template 2 does not include the progression milestones and steps and you can write your own learning objectives instead. This is to reflect the changes to the PLC that are coming in for the academic year 2019/2020 whereby the progression continua will no longer be included in the curriculum, but will be available online as a support material instead.
Planning for the new curriculum can appear quite daunting at first and there is a lot of new terminology, so I have written a quick guide to using the planning templates and have included them with this plan.

  • The layout of these plans is suitable for any class using the New Primary Language Curriculum (Gaeilge and English) from Junior Infants – Second Class.
  • They are also very suitable for multi-class planning due to section for outlining the progression milestones and steps for different groups in the class, or differentiated objectives for each group in the class.
  • I have included a blank version of the planning templates for both Gaeilge and English that you can fill out for your own class. I have also included sample plans for Gaeilge and English with content for First Class so you will see how to use it. These sample plans are for illustrative purposes on how to fill out the plan only, and so I have not included sample plans for other class levels.
  • A huge amount of time and effort was put into this plan and I am confident you will be happy with your purchase. Positive reviews are very much appreciated to let other users know that this is a quality plan. If you purchase these plans and take the time to review them, as a thank you I will send you a sample first/ second class or Infants timetable AND a comprehensive 6 page integration plan suggesting themes for the year and how different subjects can be integrated into these themes, or if you teach infants, I will send you a yearly Aistear plan with suggested stations and themes.

Thank you!
